ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
The hunt will probably only take one day/night. Book a hotel on the beach in Cocoa Beach and stay a couple extra days - not a real crowded area. Great seafood nearby, Kennedy Space Center and of course Disney World. This is one of the few hunts where I would recommend taking a buddy, so you can relax and enjoy.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: Getting close enough to make a successful bow shot on a trophy alligator.
Equipment Recommendations: Special gator getter arrows and heads with reel and float.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? Lots of fun and very exciting being on an air boat at night in the middle of a rain storm and dealing with a ten foot gator. After numerous attempts we were able to get an arrow with line attached into a gator. All of the gyrations involved with getting a flailing ten foot alligator into the boat is about as much fun as you can have on a hunt. Also I think it would be a great hunt for two buddies to do as you could take turns videoing and taking pictures. This hunt also provides an excellent opportunity to combine hunting with a family vacation.
